When Charged With DUI in Kansas City, Kansas: Request a Kansas Drivers
License Hearing within Ten Days
Your court date might be four to six weeks from the date the citation was
issued, but some rights, such as the right to contest the potential suspension
or revocation of your Kansas Driving Privileges when charged with DUI,
expire within ten business days/ fourteen calendar days of being served
with the DC-27 form (Pink Form). The possible suspension or revocation
of your Kansas Drivers License is a separate matter from the criminal
case in Kansas City Kansas Municipal Court. The administrative hearing
request must also be accompanied by a $50.00 fee.
Read the fine print: failure to enclose the $50.00 fee with a written request
for your Kansas Drivers License Hearing will result in that request being denied.

we take on your behalf is to request that an administrative hearing be
held; this preserves your right to contest the potential suspension of
your Kansas Driving Privileges and also importantly allows you to continue
to drive legally in Kansas during this process.
